I expected to re-provision the domain. (That is easy, now.) 

Okay, so now the question becomes after the re-provision of the domain
on the DC what needs to be changed on the MEMBER server. Obviously, the
hostname needs to be corrected and check any needed changes within the
smb.conf file.

The hostname files I know how to change. No problem there. The kerberos install, I think can be re-configured with 'dpkg-reconfigure'.

Maybe there should be a BIIIIIG not inside the wiki? I updated the wiki yesterday in three places saying not to use .local, I believe that Marc has also updated the DNS page as well.
